Recreational Love came to life over a half-decade of songwriting and recording. ?We didn?t mean to take so long but life ended up getting in the way, in a great way,? says vocalist?Inara George, who formed the duo with multi-instrumentalist?Greg Kurstin?in 2005.?In the midst of pursuing other projects ? George also sings in the indie-folk supergroup the?Living Sisters, Kurstin?s a Grammy Award-nominated producer who?s recently worked with?Sia,?Lykke Li, and?Charli XCX?? the two met most Friday mornings at Kurstin?s studio to dream up their latest batch of finely textured retro-pop. With a hint of R&B adding some warm grooves this time around,?Recreational Love?captures the easy intimacy of their collaboration and lets listeners slip into the band?s own charmed and secret world.
Though it?s The Bird and the Bee?s first album of original material since?Ray Guns Are Not Just the Future?(a 2009 release that the A.V. Club praised for its ?exploration of carefree, happy-making music?),?Recreational Love?perhaps more closely follows their 2010 album?Interpreting the Masters, Vol. 1: A Tribute to Daryl Hall and John Oates.?At turns sophisticated and sweetly off-kilter, dreamlike and dance-ready,?the forthcoming album?strips away the densely layered sound of The Bird and the Bee?s earlier efforts to let their silky-smooth melodies shine through.
